a long-term deficit reduction deal. grover norquist was on cnn on friday responding to senator chambliss' comments. let's listen to what grover norquist had to say. [video clip] >> the commitment he made to the people of georgia was not to me. it was a commitment to the people of georgia that he would go to washington to reduce government spending and to reform government and not raise taxes. if he wants to change his mind and become a tax increaser so we don't have to reform government, need to have that conversation with the people of georgia. he talks about my plan to increase debt, the only plan i think i supported is the paul ryan deal, which reduces the deficit, pays down the debt, does not raise taxes, and it is a written plan that senator chambliss actually voted for. so i think they caught him on a tv station and he said something scraps that did not make sense. >> have you thought about changing the pledged in any way? >> again, i cannot change the pledge, because t it is,o me. it is not like people are promising this to me. >> it was your group. everybody associates the pledge

-span. re-airs begin at noon with meet the press, 1:00, abc's this week. fox news sunday. cnn state of the union at 3:00 and face the nation from cbs. listen to them all on c-span radio 91 fm. xm satellite channel 119. listen on your i-phone, blackberry or android. on c-span.org. truman had two big puzzles in his life. first was, this is a man that got in politics having failed in many businesses as a young man. and the only way to get in politics in missouri was to be part of a machine. there were two of them and he looked up with the pender gast machine arguably the most corrupt and often vicious machine. i said how did this happen? how could he work in this machine in local politics? that was the first thing i had to work out. the second of course is what we all know about and that is how did he come to use the atomic bomb? what was behind the decision? what's the story about the atomic bomb before he became president? and then when the decision was on his desk. it's still a controversial story and i wanted to know more about it. >> from his early life through his presidency. we
of the mainstream media, including cnn and the networks have reported, and reporting of the bombing and going to the hospitals, and showing some of the destruction. what i see here in the discourse though is that -- obviously there is more sympathy with israel and congress. more sympathy in the and administration. but the discourse itself is so focused on the simple narrative of what happened yesterday or what is happening today that it does fail to tell the bigger picture, and the benignbigger pe i started with. it is not just about who started shooting. that matters, but it is about an unnatural situation. the palestinians have been under occupation for 45 years. it is not just in gaza, they have been under siege for four years. you can go back and forth about who was responsible, but you cannot say this is a natural. sure, at a is really cannot live if an american would not tolerate a single rocket fired -- but what americans would tolerate being under occupation for just one day let alone 45 years? i think the bottom line is that we have an environment of it is much bigger than the ceasef
. patty, republican caller. caller: i wonder if this gentleman is aware that cnn had no problem going into this embassy to find documents. it was deliberate that did not send in the fbi to investigate. this was right before an election, and this gentleman is not sure why it took so long? also, c-span should have done some in depth shows before the election. i am disappointed in how you protected president obama in comparison to the-shows when president bush was president. part of the problem in ameritech is -- in america is the media should put under their caption white house stenographer. there was also a laser with where the attacks were, and that is why he got killed. he was an absolute hero. guest: there is concern with talking points in the mainstream media, as it is called, but in my defense i have written very critical things about barack obama and his presidency over the last three years, and we try our best to be even-handed. host: rob. manassas, virginia. caller: what has befuddles me is the cia changing their assessment. i do not have some of the facts, but you seem well-in
